Vintage Rose Tablescape

by | Bride, Reception, Wedding Inspiration


A softer tablescape this afternoon. (this feels like one of those features where you can change the room for different styles!) I called this one “Vintage Rose” the soft latte, the cream, the peachy pink roses, wooden candelabras evoke a softer feel.

I love the old fashioned doily style table overlay and the pattern on the china. The little details and textures add a little extra charm. This table scape lit up by candle lit would create such a pretty, warm glow at your reception.

Garden Glamour Tablescape

by | Bride, Reception, Wedding Inspiration


I thought I’d share a few gorgeous tablescapes today sent over by the lovely Calli of  Calli B Photography. Two completely different looks to inspire you!

I named this one “Garden Glamour”, but it’s not a traditional English style garden whose influence we see in weddings a lot nowadays, it’s more of a richly hued, tropical garden without being overpowering.

Tall arrangements, stunning green china, masses of flowers in pinks and creams in mismatched glass containers and the latte lace style doily table overlay.
